Introduction

As one of the most complicated features in EpicDuel, factions play a huge part in EpicDuel’s Community.
The Faction War between Legion and Exile has been ongoing for as long as most can remember!
Factions are basically a group of players who fight together toward a common cause. Today, factions are created for various reasons. Factions can have up to 18 Players in total.

This guide will explain features that are quite difficult to understand.


The Faction War and Faction War Bar

The Faction War is the ongoing War between two alignments – Legion and Exile.

Storyline:

The Legion

The Legion are those loyal to Baelius and trust in their benevolent leader to rule Delta V. Before the War, Baelius’ brutal methods of maintaining order caused a split amongst his labor-force. Those that dissented joined the Uprising, a rebellious group of brigands and profiteers who sought to form a coup against Baelius. Those who believed the resistance was the cause of Baelius’ ruthless punishment formed The Legion. These loyalists were essentially fighting a two-front battle: They had to put down the Uprising where they could with one hand and steel themselves against the brutality of Baelius’ totalitarian reprisal with the other.

Some say The Legion’s staunch devotion is folly. Others believe The Legion are the hardened defenders of a renewed future of prosperity and peace on Delta V.

For The Legion, the return to Delta V from exile was the beginning of a new era. A new war has begun for them, one which they must not lose if they wish to see order restored to a broken and divided Delta V. The Legion will stand against the chaos-mongers and fight for a final victory on a world they wish to call home once again.

Will you fight for the future of Delta V? Will you fight for Baelius’ forgotten army?

The Exiles

The term “Exile” describes anyone banished during the War when Baelius’ “Efficiency Solution” went into effect. Yet, only those who fought for the Uprising wear this badge with pride.

Throughout its history, the human race has proven time and again that it will not suffer an oppressive ruler. Baelius was no exception. The Uprising formed as a direct result of his tightening grip and the cries of “This will not stand!” shook Baelius’ citadel walls and echoed through the mines. The Uprising fought tooth and nail against the hardened Legion forces and their endless ranks of automated reinforcements. With Oz, an ex-Shock Trooper as their leader, the Uprising scratched inch by inch to the brink of victory.

Betrayal ended the siege of Baelius’ grand Citadel and stole the lives of those closest to Oz. The final nail in the coffin came when the forces colliding in battle were banished to a realm between worlds. One of chaos and without time.

But now the Uprising has returned, proudly waving the Exile banner! For them, the War never ended and new leaders have risen to the challenge of freeing Delta V’s people! The challenge now lies in unifying the Exile forces against a common foe.

So, Exile, are you prepared to fight for your freedom?

The Faction War Bar is located on the top of your screen.
This shows information regarding the Daily Faction War Bar.
The first thing you would see in this bar is the amount of War Kills earned from each alignment.
The winner and loser of the Daily Faction War is announced at the end of the day.

Reinforcements

At the beginning of each day, reinforcements are added to one of the alignments. These reinforcements depend upon the previous day’s reinforcements and the winner’s margin of victory of the current day.

The formula is as follows:
Let Legion’s reinforcements be positive (+)
Let Exile’s reinforcements be negative (-)

(Previous Day’s Reinforcements)-(1/2)(Winning Alignment’s Margin of victory)=(Reinforcements added at the start of the next day)
If (-) Exile receives reinforcements
If (+) Legion receives reinforcements

Example 1:
Suppose no reinforcements are given, as was the case when the system was first implemented. That day suppose Exile won by 10,000. The reinforcements given on Day 2 would be calculated using the above formula:

(0)-(1/2)(-10,000)=5,000 Reinforcements given to legion for the upcoming day

Suppose Exile won the next day by 20,000.

(5,000)-(1/2)(-20,000)=15,000 Legion Reinforcements for the Day 3.

Suppose Legion won that day by 30,000.

(15,000)-(1/2)(30,000)=0 Reinforcements for the next day.

Example 2:
Suppose Legion had receieved 40,000 reinforcements to start the day. Legion won that day by 30,000.

(40,000)-(1/2)(30,000)=25,000 legion reinforcements at the start of Day 2.

Suppose Exile won Day 2 by 10,000.

(25,000)-(1/2)(-10,000)=30,000 Legion Reinforcements for the next day.

Suppose Legion day 3 by 80,000.

(30,000)-(1/2)(80,000)= -10,000 – Exile Receives 10,000 reinforcements for the next day.

Suppose legion wins Day 4 by 20,000:

(-10,000)-(1/2)(10,000)= -15,000 – Negative so Exile receives 15,000 reinforcements at the start of day 5.

Other features in the Faction War Bar include Creating a New Faction and Viewing the Factions with the Most Influence


Influential Factions

Influential factions are factions with the most influence during the day.
These factions are taxed everyday. The amount of tax given to them varies depending on how many factions have more influence than you in your alignment.
Here is a picture to guide you on the amount of influence taxed on factions.

If you’re faction has the most influence in it’s alignment, the World Domination achievement is awarded to all players in the faction, and the amount of World Dominations is increased in your faction’s statistics by one.
